Paper Abstract

Light-diffraction tomography is a noninvasive measurement technique for mapping ultrasound fields and provides a high spatial resolution. In the range of the Raman-Nath approach, this technique can be successfully applied to frequencies of approximately 5 MHz to ultrasound fields of any geometry. Beyond this frequency range, however, light diffraction implies peculiarities that strongly affect data acquisition. It is the aim of this review to outline the capability of the method, including its range of applicability, and to discuss new steps for its extension.
